The project is adorned in maximalist design with modern interiors to adapt to the changing demands of today’s consumers, and at the same time Staying true to the nostalgia Khan Market evokes. An intimate space, the restaurant is an amalgamation of two different worlds– a cosy meeting point serving up drinks and quick Asian bites, and a little corporate escapism.
The all-day dining, two-floored restaurant-cum-bar features a double-heighted ceiling at the entrance. A fantastic venue for those in need of a spot of brunch, dinner or even just casual drinks, the different range of seating techniques complement the various usage demands. Custom terrazzo floors add a splash of colour and served as inspiration for the entire décor of the restaurant. It brings in playfulness as the beautiful colour palette is reflected in the mirrors carefully placed on the ceiling, creating a vintage romance. Additionally, mirrors are aesthetically placed to complement the slender profile of the restaurant and add up to a mosaic effect, creating an illusory depth of space.
Lighting is skilfully integrated, providing ambient illumination and design interest, while creating an atmosphere of relaxation. Layered with the natural afternoon light, it creates an uplifting and energizing effect.
The glazing establishes a connection between the outer world and the indoors and allows for natural light to sweep in, infusing warmth and playfully interacting with the colourful terrazzo floor.
